The leaders of governing-Coalition parties Smer-SD, SNS and ĽS-HZDS - Robert Fico, Ján Slota and Vladimír Mečiar - interrupted the Coalition Council session on November 19 and postponed it indefinitely. Fico left the meeting, declining to make any comment for the media, as did his spokesperson Silvia Glendová.
"The Coalition Council session was interrupted indefinitely, and we agreed we won't provide any further comments," said Slota, adding that the discussion was a pragmatic one.
According to the HZDS spokesperson Katarína Belická, the meeting didn't result in any specific outcome. However, the issue of the scandal surrounding land restitutions at the Slovak Land Fund (SPF) was discussed. TASR
